Mics pick up a great conversation

Commissonerdangle sent this to me this morning but I just got around to checking it out. Watch it now before Youtube pulls the video. To give it some context, if you don’t already know, the Blues and Canucks have been in a pretty heated series. This video is from Game 1 of the series and the on-ice mic picked up a great trash-talking conversation. I don’t know all the players involved so please comment who is saying what. I would love to have a player like Adam Burish or Sean Avery mic’ed up for an entire game just to pick up what the players say to each other. Of course, you cannot mention the video above without watching this one as a compliment.

Thanks to deadspin.com for the link. They have more context to the story.

NOTE: The conversation is a little graphic, if you’re not a hockey player.

The text from deadspin:

Here’s another gem I missed from the first-round of the NHL playoffs. It seems that the Canucks are not only trouncing St. Louis on the ice, but they also lead in trash-talk opposition research.

During the first period of the first game of their opening series, powerful TV microphones caught Canucks Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows sending their polite regards to Blues winger David Backes … and his lovely wife, Kelly. (“Tell Kelly I said hi!” yells Kesler. “Hey,” adds Burrows, “Kelly is a great girl.”) Classy as always, hockey dudes. But the funny part is that Backes says he doesn’t even know Kesler or Burrows, has never had a run-in with them in a game before, and doesn’t even know how they would know his wife’s name. The answer must be Canada’s superior smack-talking investigators.

“They just have better researchers than I do,” he shrugged. “There was a guy who got suspended for a couple of games [for talking about someone else’s significant other], wasn’t there?”

We all know what he’s talking about there, but that was different. Cuthbert is an (inter)national treasure.

“Hey, my wife is a strong woman. She can take it,” Backes said. “She’s pretty attractive — I’m pretty proud of what I landed there. I’m over-achieving.”

In other words, while you guys are getting your teeth knocked out in the second-round, I’ll be busy sexing up my hot, hot wife.
